Review: Hell Fire

Hell Fire (Corine Solomon, #2)Hell Fire by Ann Aguirre
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I definitely liked this book better than Blue Diablo. (I also love that the book titles are alcoholic concoctions that Corine chooses to imbibe in). I’m still having a hard time really liking Chance. Admittedly, I wanted to like him more, especially because he is different in this book from the last (for several reasons), but I just can’t/don’t. The book starts with just Corine and Chance on an adventure. I think if Jesse Saldana hadn’t eventually shown up (and another character been introduced), I don’t think I could have stuck with the book. I can’t even really place what bothers me about Chance. Anyone else having trouble liking Chance?

Overall, I liked the story but I feel like Corine is a little slow at putting the pieces together. This book has convinced me to stick with the series because I hope my opinions of them will continue improving. Plus (SPOILER ALERT), I really want to see Corine explore her new powers and perhaps end up with all of her mother’s talents, find out how the relationship with Jesse develops (as her mentor if nothing else), find out whether Shannon ends up in trouble because of guiding the dead, angry spirits and shadows.

Thanks for keeping me reading Ann!

Meghan is an environmental scientist by trade but an artist at heart. She loves all things geeky/nerdy and is frequently found with less geeky friends rolling their eyes at her. She often spouts all kinds of pop culture trivia and nonsense stemming from her avid love of movies, music, art, and books. If not curled up with a book (she reads at least one a week) or comic, she can be found painting with something on a screen to distract her. She wishes she was as cool as Veronica Mars or as Kate Daniels. Besides blogging about comics here you can also find her exploring around twitter, instagram, tumblr, pinterest, goodreads, and trying to keep up appearances on her own blog.
